The Mechanism of the Formation of MoSi2 by Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis
A combustion front quenching (CFQ) technique was used to investigate the mechanism of selfpropagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) of MoSi2 from Mo and Si powders. Based on the experimental results, a combination of reactive diffusion and dissolution-precipitation mechanism of the formation of MoSi2 was proposed, and a model corresponding to this mechanism was drawn.
